YourMum presents: Honne, live in Hong Kong Electronic soul pop at its best
For fans of: Rhye, FKJ, The xx, Tom Misch
YourMum is thrilled to announce that British duo HONNE will be playing Hong Kong with their full band on the 27th February 2019 at MacPherson Stadium.
The songwriting and producing team of James Hatcher and Andy Clutterbuck met at university and with their emotive take on classic soul and delicate beats, began capturing the hearts of fans ever since. Their name derived by the Japanese concept of “true feelings,” they released their debut EP ‘Warm On A Cold Night’ in September 2014, followed by ‘All In the Value’ in the same year. After starting their own label, Tatemae Recordings in 2015, they released two more EPs: ‘Coastal Love’ & ‘Over Lover’ garnering an impressive online following in the process, and touring Europe whilst also selling out shows in their native UK. ‘Gone Are The Days’ dropped in 2016 before their first full length album ‘Warm On A Cold Night,’ which saw the duo elevated to playing the world’s most renown festivals and venues the world over, and with a blossoming reputation for bringing romance back to the dance floor. Their sophomore LP ‘Love Me / Love Me Not’ was released in August 2018 to both public and critical acclaim.
Influenced by the likes of Al Green and Bill Withers, their warm electronic sound gushes with emotive sweetness, revealing hints of Qunicy Jones’ early work with Michael Jackson by combining soul and synths spread over sensual nocturnal sonics. It is a sound that has become an instant hit in Asia, with multiple sold out shows in the region to date in Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan and the Philippines. Having previously only made a short, promotional visit to Hong Kong to play a couple stripped back, intimate sets, local fans can finally catch the full production show in all its glory, when the duo backed with their full band perform here on the 27th February.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on the 7th December from www.ticketflap.com/honne and we highly recommend acting fast as this show will sell quickly.

Honne由James Hatcher 及 Andy Clutterbuck兩位於大學相識的成員組成，團名Honne有「true feeling」（真實感覺）的意思。2014年連續發行了首張EP《Warm On A Cold Night》和後續的《All In The Value》，在傳統騷靈的音樂及律動的節拍上加入感性朦朧的色彩，加上躍動的電子音樂旋律，旋即俘虜樂迷的心。2015年Honne成立自己的唱片品牌 Tatemae Recordings並繼續推出兩張耐聽的EP《Coastal Love》及《Over Lover》，過程中累積了數目龐大的網上支持者。其後他們順勢進行歐洲巡演，在家鄉英國的場次更是經常爆滿。繁忙的巡演行程並沒有減低他們旺盛的創作意欲與才能，2016年Honne推出首張正式專輯《Warm On A Cold Night》前，率先發行了出道至今第5張EP《Gone Are The Days》，二人人氣銳不可當，先後征服國際多個著名的音樂節（包括Coachella 和Lollapalooza）及大型表演場地。觀眾及樂評都對他們的音樂盛讚，認為Honne將浪漫情懷重新注入舞池裡。2018年出版的第二張專輯《Love Me / Love Me Not》繼續叫好叫座。
